International Mother Earth Day: Honor Our Veterans and Show Compassion
As we celebrate life in our planet on April 22, which is International Mother Earth Day, we also ought to remember and honor our retired troops, our military servicemen and women who bravely risked their lives to protect our country and our rights against all forms of violence and terrorism.
Various attempts have been made to conserve and preserve our Mother Earth to secure the future of the next generations. Just as we extend extra efforts to save our planet, we are also encouraged to extend our generosity to our veterans.
Hundreds of thousands of our veterans are jobless while tens of thousands are homeless. Some of them were from the latest batches of servicemen and women who were discharged following their return from overseas deployment. More of our troops abroad are set to return home, with many of them also facing discharge and the hardship of transitioning to civilian life.
A large number of our veterans are still suffering from service-related physical and mental problems, including disabilities, severe wounds, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injury (TBI), and depression.
We at Veteran Car Donations are working resolutely to gather more funds through our nationwide car donation campaigns to sustain and strengthen the programs of our non-profit organization partners all geared towards providing essential services to our struggling veterans and their families.

Donating a car to us is fast and easy. We also design it to provide our donors a satisfying and rewarding donating experience. Our car donation process consists of three simple steps:
